I am very sorry for your loss. I’d run into Mark a few times a year and he was always so cheerful with me. He will be sadly missed.

To Cyndi, Timmi, John-John, Jimmi, and Jen

My family and I are tragically shaken with the loss of our very good friend and my best friend. We loved Marky like he was part of our own family. He was always there for us some how. Whether it be a sad, happy, or just a casual occasion. We will cherish all our memories we had with Marky, the Harley rides, Ohio for the polka parties, when we took the bikes down to Florida, to see Confederate Railroad, parties, hunting, and fourwheeling, and most of all just talking to him. It will never be the same without Marky and there will always be a gap for the rest of our lives. Marky’s memories will never be forgotten.
If any of you ever need anything please let my family and I know. We will always be here for you all for ever.

With all of our love and deepest sympathy:
Robert, Susan, Dustin, Crystal, and Rylan Zimmerman.

To all of Mark’s family;
I am so saddened by the news of Mark’s death. What a kind hearted man. You are so fortunate to have had him in your lives. Marky would have and did give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it and was an extra special angel living right here on earth. Although a joyous reunion will take place when he is once again reunited with his mom and dad, Johnny and Rita, the void left here on this earth is one that will not easily be replaced. May all of his memories be of some comfort to all of you. He was truly a remarkable man. God Bless all of you! Rest in Peace, Mark. Margie Shaffer Fritz

We have known Mark and his family for many years. We have great memories of our times together. Mark was always smiling and always helpful if we needed anything. We will miss him and think of him often.

To Jen and family.
We are so sorry to hear of Marky’s passing. He was a friend to all and had a heart of gold, he would have done anything for anyone he crossed paths with. May you find comfort in each other and hold tight onto the memories. Your family has endured so much heartache through the years, yet you all stick together and continue to be strong for one another. Sorry I am unable to be there, but if you need anything, please let my parents know.

With sympathy,
Krista, Jeff, Payton and Sara Artley

Tim, Cindi, Jon-Jon, Jimmy, Jennifer
My heart goes out to each and every one of you. I know how much Marky meant to each you. He was sooo much more than a brother. All of you also share the same qualities of Marky- kindness, loyalty, giving, helpful… to name a few, which gives me the comfort of knowing I will still see him in each and everyone of you. Hold tight to your memories. I know I will miss his smiling face from across the room and his unforgettable laugh. He has always been there for the good times and bad and I truly believe he will still be there for all of you. We have definitely lost a very special person, but we have gained an Angel! God Bless all of You!

Stephanie Meyer September 13, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Reading through all the condolences I have to agree with the statement that you all, “The Mattivi Family”, hold that special quality that Marky had and that is kindness. Your parents would be so proud of all of you being there for each other like you have been. God bless all of you and know that you will see him again someday. Marky will be dearly missed here on earth.

To All of Mark’s Family,

My deepest sympathy to all of you for your loss.
I lived across from Mark’s cousins all my life and then met Mark at the plant where we worked. He was a great worker and would do anything for anybody at any time whether he was busy or not he would drop everything to help. I worked with Mark the past 10 years or so he was always happy go lucky. I’ll miss seeing him everyday. He was a good man, he will be looking down on us with his always present smile. Take solace in the many many friends that Mark has made, he made their lives extra special.

Margie and Ken September 13, 2012 at 6:13 pm

Cindy, Jen and family,

I’m sorry to hear about your loss, thoughts and prayers are with you all. In this hard time try to remember all the good times that you had with Marky. You now have another wonderful angel to watch over you and your families. God bless.

Mattivi Family,

We are very sorry for your loss. Marky will be missed very much by all who came in contact with him. I will miss passing by him in my car and seeing his wave from a mile away. He always had a smile every time we saw him. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
